This polymer looks relatively elongated
There were 0 instances in our 1000 simulations where we observed R = 0. However, the average of the distribution appears to be close to zero
While the average value of R of the simulations seems to be pretty close to zero, the simulations themselves appear to rarely achieve that value. Using the RMS value will give us a non-zero value of R, and will likely give us a value that is closer to what is actually observed in polymer behavior.
We would expect the RMS values to scale by a factor of sqrt(n).
n= 100, Predicted RMS: 10.0, Calculated RMS: 9.96212828666646 n= 500, Predicted RMS: 22.360679774997898, Calculated RMS: 23.039748262513633 n= 1000, Predicted RMS: 31.622776601683793, Calculated RMS: 31.721380802228644
From the above results, it seems that the simulation does roughly scale by the predicted factor of sqrt(n)
